Petty was arrested by federal sheriffs on Wednesday, for not registering as a sex offender in the state of California.

Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, is in the middle of an awkward legal problem.

Petty was arrested by federal sheriffs on Wednesday, for not registering as a sex offender in the state of California, after moving from New York, Fox News reports.

According to TMZ, Petty’s legal problems began in November after being stopped by the Beverly Hills Police Department during a traffic stop. At that time, authorities determined that Petty was a sex offender registered in the state of New York, but had not registered in California, the media reported.

Petty was arrested in November 2019 by the Beverly Hills Police Department. He was released on bail of US $ 20,000.

Petty pleaded not guilty, according to the United States Attorney’s Office. Since then it has been released with a bonus of US $ 100,000.

“You are required to undergo electronic monitoring and your trip is restricted to southern California,” said the United States Attorney’s Office.

According to TMZ, you are also required to comply with a curfew, turn in your passport and have restrictions on using drugs, including marijuana, which is legally sold in Los Angeles dispensaries.

Petty was convicted in 1995 for the attempted first-degree rape of a 16-year-old girl, after an incident in 1994 when she was 16.

Petty will have his case reviewed on March 23 to determine the next steps in the trial, which will take place on April 28.

Nicky Minaj has not said anything about it.
